I'm trying to establish whether or not my cousin who sadly died this year was in fact born in England and not South Africa. Every obit on the net refers to her as having been born in South Africa of South African parents. I know for a fact that her Mother was English born and that her parents were married in England. I'm waiting for their marriage cert to find out whether her Father was in fact English born too!


Patricia Mills (professional name Maryon Lane)
Father's name Ernest A.K. Mills
Mother's maiden name: Maskell
D.O.B. 15 Feb 1931

Any help much appreciated, thank you.

there are 2 listed under j-m quarter but neither match the MMN, so just looking at next quarter.

there are 5 in the next quarter and none of those match the MMN either.

There is no Patricia Mills in JFM 1930/1931/1932 with that maiden name.

Thank you so much Amy and Tracy for looking for me, Pat obviously was born in SA. I'll now wait and see whether her Father was too:)

Try this site for SA :: Ancestry24 - Home :: (http://www.ancestry24.co.za/eng/default.aspx) Also I got information from South Africa within a day of posting on Ancestry uk forum (dont think you have to be a paid up member to post)
good luck

Any chance they might have put an announcement in a UK newspaper? - Thinking of Times Archive Online, for instance.
